La Brigada has been on our list for ages and we really enjoyed our dinner. The food was excellent and together with an Argentinean Malbec it was even better.

We ordered a proveletta cheese, salad and the lomo and were not disappointed. At the end of the dinner we were even allowed to see the wine cellar and were just astonished about the size and the excellent wines there.

Because it is listed in several travel guides you will find a lot of tourists here - however it is also very much appreciated by locals.

On arrival we were very taken with the cost atmosphere... It was quite obviously an expensive restaurant. Our waiter was most pleasant and accommodating for the evening... The wine list was extensive, though wine is not available by the glass.

The food however was, well, disappointing. The steak (3 dishes) including the top of the line lomo, was terrible.. Despite being cooked how we asked, there was lots of gristle and sinews in each cut. We left significant bits of our servings on the plate. Tough meat top price.

If you want lots of chewing!!! Go here!!

After a long walk in San Telmo (plaza dorrego surrondings) we decided to have a late-lunch in La Brigada. For our surprise,it was full of tourists, despite the presence of some Argentinians. After 30 minutes we got a table.

I had the "bife de chorizo" and my wife the *colita de cuadril". My wife's meat was outstanding and mine was good. We also had a great red wine (la brigada offers a complete wine list).

The atmosphere is soccer-driven and full of details. It is an interesting decoration. If you are looking for a place that serves a good meat but don't mind for being in more touristic enviroment, la brigada is the right choice.

The service was efficient and the price fair even for a touristic restaurant.

The food here was excellent, especially the beef. Large servings, tender and done to perfection. Ordered side order of fries [one serving enough for two]. Service was top notch. Went with the waiters wine suggestion and glad we did. Popular variety of local wine in Argentina is a red wine, Malbec. We bought a bottle here in the states and liked it, but the one our waiter served us was much better. With a generous tip meal, wine, and desert the bill came to just under $100 dollars. It's not a large place, but the tables were not crowded together. Loved the sports bar motif. It was a pleasant experience.

If you're looking for a great steak then La Brigada serves exactly this, cooked to perfection. Tasty and succulent. If you want something served with your steak then be sure to ask what the options are when you order your steak, otherwise you will be served with a chunk of meat on your plate and nothing else.
